The 1968 French Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at the Rouen-Les-Essarts Circuit on July 7, 1968. It was the sixth round of the 1968 Formula One season.



  • Milestones:
  • Jo Schlesser had a fatal accident on the second lap of the race, when he lost control in the then-new Honda RA302 chassis which overturned and caught fire partially due to its magnesium content. He was chosen when normal Honda driver John Surtees refused to drive the new car, opting for the older RA301 chassis, on the grounds that the new car was unsafe.
  • This race was a turning point in Formula One as the death of Schlesser prompted many safety precautions in later races. This was also the last F1 race to take place at Rouen-Les Essarts.
